On June 1st, 2014, the ISMM came into being. The creation of a new Diocese within the Anglican Church of Canada was a major milestone in the journey of establishing a self-determining, self-sustaining Indigenous Church within the Anglican Church of Canada. The ISMM encompasses over 25 First Nations communities in Northwestern Ontario and Northern Manitoba. Its structures and program are uniquely aboriginal in that it is an expression of indigenous self-determination within the Anglican Church, committed to upholding the tradition, order and discipline of the Church, expressing that commitment in a manner that is consistent with the cultural and spiritual heritage of the Indigenous people of the region.
